Planning Applications

The planning system is complex, frustrating and subject to periodic changes of policy. We have a good record of successfully obtaining planning permission for a wide range of projects, and have established working relationships with a number of planning consultants. Our services include pre-application advice and the preparation and submission of planning applications, including:

  • Alterations and extensions
  • New buildings and developments
  • Changes of use
  • Retrospective applications
  • Commercial building applications
  • Certificates of lawful use
  • Outline applications

This service includes the preparation of all necessary drawings and supporting documents, such as design and access statements. We can also procure other reports required to support certain applications, such as bat surveys, environmental impact assessments, archaeological assessments, etc.
